Royal Gorge Route Railroad back on track May 23

Catering to more than 150,000 guests annually and with a payroll of 300 people, the Royal Gorge Route Railroad is anxious to get going full steam ahead after having suspended operations in mid-March because of the global coronavirus pandemic.

The train tentatively is slated to reopen May 23 with three departures per day.

Once opened again, social distancing won’t be a problem. With a total of 17 cars comprising the train, there is room for 300 guests to have more than six feet of personal space, and staff will be trained on proper guidelines and protocols for their own safety and that of the guests.

Yeah, it's not bad. Sure would be nice to see a bigger version of that. Wonder who the photographer was, he's doing some decent work.

BTW, that's a recently added feature. Links now include larger preview images, making it easier to see what the article linked to is all about.
